As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
This is totally my favorite time of the year. Mother Goose Time shared their theme list for the 2017-2018 school year not too long ago and I’m definitely in shopping and planning mode right now. The little guy and I are so excited about the awesome stuff that we’ll be doing next year. If you haven’t already, you can check it out here. We’re going to be learning about everything from the human body to nature.
And of course the best thing about a new school year and new curriculum is reorganizing. If you’ve been around for a while, I’m sure you’re not at all surprised. Lol…
Not too long ago, the little guy and I were doing what we do best and I found some really cool wooden crates, so I bought a few. Basically, going shopping almost always involves at least some rearranging.
I’m seriously lovin’ our homeschool space these days. The little guy and I emptied off his shelves and went through everything. Some stuff got moved upstairs, but most of what we’re planning to use for preschool stayed right where it was.
Obviously, Mother Goose Time is front and center. We almost always just work out of the box at this point. It’s quick + easy because everything we need is in the daily discovery bag.
We combined all of our manipulatives from previous months into two containers. The counting manipulatives in one and shape manipulatives in another. And our Teacher Guide is always on top of our cube bookshelves. I also have a Happy Planner that I use to record what we do each day.
We use the 10-drawer cart for our jumbo letter cards and counting cards as well as the I Can Read books and sight word pointers. And our new manipulatives are on top.
One awesome thing about this curriculum is having a new theme each month, which means lots of fun stuff. Not only do we get an entire box full of stuff from Mother Goose Time, but we also buy a few books, puzzles, and games.
This month, we ended up buying all kinds of stuff. We got bug stamps, a butterfly garden, and of course a few books. For me, it’s about creating a lifelong love of learning and Mother Goose Time makes it so easy to do just that.
I’ve been sorting everything by theme and storing it in the little guy’s closet. I’m definitely planning to use it all again. That’s one of the many things that I love about this curriculum. We can totally make it work for us.
